It might seem vaguely ludicrous that the generation that grew up in the “social” world, graduating from Bebo and MySpace to Facebook and Instagram, has trouble with loneliness. But among millennials, it’s incredibly common. One YouGov poll found that nearly a quarter of all millennials could not name a single friend. The same survey showed that close to a third of this generation – my generation – "always" or "often" feel lonely.
